I became reacquainted recently with a song that rolled around on my playlist, and which I actually posted on a couple of years back.  The song was written by Ashley Gorley and Bryan Simpson.  Sammy Kershaw put it out in 2010, to no particular success/acclaim (though I prefer his version) and then a few months later Tim McGraw recorded it and it became a hit – go figure.  The first lines pulls you in – “I know how to hold a grudge.  I can burn a bridge up in smoke.”  It is all, of course, a set up for the simple tag line that strikes me as something that is a good reminder of my classification as a work in progress: “I ain’t as good as I’m gonna get, but I’m better than I used to be.”  Somehow, I can see Paul (Romans 12:2 Paul, post road-to-Corinth Paul) having this in regular rotation on his playlist.
